Trying to stay out of the factional argument, but here's my take on it:Ashenvale has always been about the intrusion of the horde into the ancestral lands of the night elves. Since Durotar is devoid of all resources, and northern barrens isn't much better, Ashenvale becomes the best possible target once the repairs of Orgrimmar begin.Camp Taurajo was probably supposed to be a "drive em back into Mulgore so we can claim Barrens" action by the Theramore military. The razing of the village was intentional, the number of casualties on the Tauren side was probably not.The Forsaken are pretty much running things their way right now. Sylvanas has pretty much told Garrosh that she's not listening. The blight bombs were never supposed to be used again following the events of Wraithgate.*HOWEVER*Considering that the Forsaken are currently in combat with the Worgen, and neither side really has any form of readily available reinforcements (for the forsaken, the closest allies are the bloodelves up north, and pretty much all of the alliance are south of them) the destruction of South Shore can be seen as a defensive move. By eliminating a port in which alliance troops can be moved into hillsbrad, the Forsaken can move most of their forces to engage the worgen.
